Saudi-led coalition resumes air strikes in Yemen

18 May 2015, Nirapad News: A Saudi-led coalition has resumed its air strikes against Yemen’s rebels after the end of a ceasefire.

Yemeni military officials and witnesses say, reports the BBC.

They say the strikes targeted Houthi rebel positions in the southern port of Aden after the five-day humanitarian truce expired at 20:00 GMT.

In Saudi Arabia, Yemeni political parties earlier began negotiations on how to resolve the crisis.

But Shia rebels stayed away from the talks in the capital Riyadh.

Opening the meeting, the UN envoy to Yemen, Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed, said, ‘I call on all parties to renew their commitment to this truce for five more days at least’.

He also urged them ‘to refrain from any action that disturbs the peace of airports, main areas and the infrastructure of transport’.
